Poised above the cliff edge to a backdrop of rustic headland, you’re overlooking the ocean from most angles – a magical setting in all weathers. Look out for seals and dolphins from the terrace or through binoculars left out in your room.
Food is a focus here – it’s fresh, seasonal and locally-sourced. Wander down to a breakfast outside on the terrace when it’s sunny: full Cornish, Mexican-style eggs and good coffee. The dinner menus are pleasingly short and packed with fish straight from the sea, meat from the fields around and plenty of vegan and vegetarian options.
Smiley staff make everyone feel welcome (including the dog). You’re between Fistral and Crantock beaches so head out early to catch the surf before the crowds or set off on long walks on the coastal path.
